Assistant Principal 

My name is Molly Tessnear and I am delighted to be serving as Woodhill's Assistant Principal for the 2023-2024 school year. I am excited to support the vision of the school by helping to create a positive and successful learning environment for all of our bright, intelligent and amazing students. I cannot wait to see what the students and staff at the H.I.V.E. can achieve!

I am a graduate of Gardner-Webb University with a Bachelor of Arts in English. I began teaching in 2015 at the wonderful Hunter Huss High School, and in 2019, I was honored as the Hunter Huss Teacher of the Year and a finalist for Gaston County Schools Teacher of the Year. In 2021, I was blessed to be selected as a North Carolina Principal Fellow. In 2023, I received my Master of School Administration from UNC-Charlotte. I look forward to serving Gaston County students for years to come.
